Chilled Peach Soup (Soupe de Pêche Glacée)
5-6 Ripe Peaches
2 Cups Water
1 Cup Apple Juice
1 Lime, Zest and Juice
Cut a small “X” through the bottom of each peach. Then blanch for 20 seconds in a pot of boiling water. Transfer peaches to a bowl of ice water. When cooled drain well and then peel them.
Add peaches, water, apple juice, and lime zest and juice to a blender. Blend until smooth. Taste. If not sweet enough add ¼ cup on honey. Salt and pepper may be added depending upon taste. Chill for a minimum of two hours. Serve cold in bowls with mint sprigs as a garnish.
